Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES)

Arising under the Local Government Reform Act 2014 the Southern Regional Assembly assumed a number of new functions.  Chief among these responsibilities is the preparation of a Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) for the Southern Region.

Each one of the three Regional Assemblies have prepared their own Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) which will provide a long-term regional level strategic planning and economic framework in support of the implementation of the National Planning Framework

The Southern Regional Assembly have prepared a draft Regional Spatial and Economic Strategy (RSES) for the whole of the Southern Region for the period 2019-2031. The draft RSES provides a long-term regional level strategic planning and economic framework, in support of the implementation of the National Planning Framework, for the future physical, economic and social developments for the Southern Region.

The draft RSES is a consultation document and the Southern Regional Assembly will consider all submissions made in writing between Tuesday 18th December 2018 and on or before 5.00pm Friday 08th March 2019 before adopting the RSES.  To view the drat RSES and to make a submission or observation please visit our Public Consultation section.
